GT vs CSK: When Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is on the field, he defeats the opponent not only with his game but also with his mind. His team made it to the final of the IPL for the 10th time on Tuesday. The team beat Gujarat Titans in the qualifiers and booked their ticket. During this match, the players of Chennai showed a great game and the fans also got to see the mastermind style of Dhoni.
Pathirana was stopped by the umpires
Mahendra Singh Dhoni was once again seen having a long argument with the umpire during this match. Mathisha Pathirana was the reason for this long conversation. Pathirana was playing as an impact player in the match. Pathirana was out of the ground before the 16th over. At that time Gujarat had to score 71 runs in five overs. Dhoni wanted Pathirana to bowl the over. Had this not happened, Dhoni would have had to take the help of a sixth bowler, which could have proved costly.
Dhoni intentionally wasted time
The umpire stopped Pathirana from bowling. According to the rule, if the player goes out of the field, then he can bowl only after a fixed time. Pathirana would get a chance to bowl after about 8 minutes. Dhoni started talking to the umpire about this and kept talking for about 8 minutes. During this the waiting time for Pathirana also ended.
Pathirana led the team to victory
Dhoni ended the conversation and handed the ball to Pathirana. Fans said that Dhoni deliberately wasted time so that Pathirana could get the bowling. Even the umpires could not do anything about it. He could not stop Pathirana after 8 minutes. Fans became fans of this masterstroke of Dhoni. Pathirana conceded 13 runs in that end but got the wickets of Vijay Shankar and Darshan Nalkande first in the very next over. On the last ball of the last over, Pathirana took the wicket of Mohammed Shami and decided the team’s victory.
